  1. The search is over. https://tru-tone.com/ https://www.facebook.com/trutonebulbs
  2. Hey @hotrod1965 are you still selling the Minleon C7 and C9 bulbs?
  3. OMG, you have no idea how much I want that nixie tube Fluke meter.
  4. I would be making these sets to use inside. I wouldn't use cloth covered wire outside.
  5. You guys are thinking of the normal green poly sockets for zipcord. The sockets in question here that CDI sells are black bakelite twist-on sockets with pins to pierce the insulation and they are meant for twisted wire. Noveltylights sells them individually and sundial wire sells short sample pieces of all the wire they sell so I may go that route first, for testing purposes.
  6. Does anyone know if they will pierce into modern cloth-covered wire on their own? Or would I have to "help" them by making a tiny starting slit in the cloth braid with, say, an exacto knife? I found some beautiful red/green cloth-covered twisted wire online, and some beautiful vintage reproduction round plugs on the same website, and CDI has bakelite C7/C9 vampire/pin type sockets designed for twisted wire. Yeah, I've got ideas alright...
  7. I've posted these pics elsewhere but I'll post them again at the bottom of this post. I finally broke down and bought a set of ceramic C7s from HLE to try. Read on. The standard multi-color pack offered by most of the online stores that sell these comes with 5 colors: red, green, orange, blue and warm white. As is typical with LED, the blue and green are brighter than all the rest, even with the latest retros. Though the problem is not quite as severe as it used to be, it is still very much there and noticeable. It's a 180-degree flip from incandescents: in those, blue and green tend t
  8. 7 colors, "teal" in place of blue. The teal is blue, but a much nicer shade of blue. Bottom pics are deliberately underexposed.
  9. Go with the HLE bulbs. Use 7 colors, substituting teal in place of blue - red / green / orange / teal / warm white / pink / yellow. A total of 5 'warm' colors and the mellower teal instead of blue should create an overall warm glow. I have such a set of 29 C9s from HLE waiting at the house, I'll be by in a few days to check 'em out.
  10. Any chance you could get the smooth transparent SMD C7 and C9 bulbs in?

  11. I'll have to drop by, maybe tonight.
  12. Save money throughout the year for your Nov/Dec. power bills and use them anyway. That's my personal vote.
  13. Toss me in with the "I like C7/9s and I wish minis were never invented" group.
